They had a wonderful thing on TBS a number of years ago, they had a double feature of Deadly Game and The Girl In The Empty Grave with Andy Griffith as everyone's favorite small town sheriff. Griffith alone makes these films worthwhile with his natural talent, ability and charm, the same that he brought to his classic tv show. He spoke out in an article once and said that the shows that he produced are better than the stuff they put out on tv today and he is right! As small town Sheriff Abel Marsh he persues an industrial polluter and a mysterious killer with the help of his bumbling deputy (like Barney Fife) and his pathologist lady friend. Like most tv movies, there is no real sense of suspense or danger, it is really by the book and predictable, but you still enjoy watching because of these likeable characters that you see. Andy Griffith can do comedy and drama very well and he never lets you down. He is one of our true national treasures and just watch these films and enjoy a master at work.
